Mission Impossible

CD (Item 615483) Acid Jazz/Hollywood, Early 90s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 39

Early work by the James Taylor Quartet – one of the group's first hard-hitting Hammond-driven albums, and a killer batch of retro funky tunes with a 60s R&B instrumental feel! James is really wailing on the Hammond on this one – blowing out some hip solos that romp with a mod late 60s London groove, stomping his way through hip covers of tunes that include "Blow Up", "Mission Impossible", "Alfie", "Mrs Robinson", and "Goldfinger" – and laying down some great originals like "Be My Girl", "The Stooge", and "Untitled No 1". A really great album – and the kind of record that shows the raw roots of James' early career, the ones he's returning to in his recent excellent funk recordings!  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
